Would you be comfortable dating a woman who made significantly more money than you? - Page 3

It's rare for women to date shorter men. (Probably not surprising to most readers.) Also, to address someone else's claim, it was in the news recently that men are more likely to cheat when the woman is the higher earner. Explanations were offered, but one that wasn't is that higher-earning women probably tend to be more superficial and therefore might be picking bad boys.

having her earn around the same money as I do means I can't offer her money to have sex with me anymore.

Depends on whether her friends/colleagues are total tossers.

I'm an auditor, so I make decent money, and am used to making more than the girls I date. However, the girl I am currently dating is a lawyer, makes more money than me, and it's actually a pretty big turn on.

I didn't realize how great it was to date someone who was financially ambitious until I actually did it. Probably couldn't go back to dating a girl who made significantly less than me at this point. It's great to be in your mid 20s and, as a couple, easily take in over 6 figures.

Pretty similar here. Combined I think we make the old "fallback" SF salary.

We haven't talked hard numbers but I think she takes home close to 50% more than I do.

Although it has never mattered to me (doesn't matter at all now, since I am married), however I have dated those that earn a significant amount more, and those that earn less. As long as neither is too concerned, it wouldn't ever be a problem.

Just make sure your motivation is actually her, not the money else you would risk being labelled a free loader. As long as this is not the case, go for it!

I wouldn't really care, but it sounds awesome. Why not? In fact, I think it would be awesome to marry a woman who is independently wealthy and wealthy enough so I don't have to work either. Just think how much free time you'd have... That won't happen in a hurry, though )

being the broke lanky guy...i just met a girl two weeks ago who is born SUPER rich (for real..), stronger than me (not hard), 2 years older than me (im 19...), and about the same height (184) , wich means she was taller than me with her shoes and hair!
eventhough she i fucked me the whole time on the dance floor...i got so uncomfortable that i didnt even got her phone number... good god..she was the hottest, most perfect girl that ever hit on me

done it. Girl made like 3-4 times what I did. Was also like 8 yrs older than me. Neither bothered me.

I don't think this would bother me (although I've never done it).... however, I would hesitate to date anyone who worked more hours than I do.

In my situation it is hard not dating a woman, that makes more than I do...

You must not know much about SF. The only women in the world who make more money than the big-timers on SF are Christy and Alice Walton.

It goes without saying that both rate -1,000 on the SF looks scale, and are also obviously outside the max date-able age of 24.

Therefore, your question is moot.
